Culbin Crofthouse Cottages Bed + Breakfast offer you every
comfort, with lovely interiors and superb views, if you
have not visited this part of the Scottish Highlands let
me tell you where we are.
We are situated on The Black Isle at Drumsmittal, just a
five minute drive from Inverness City, with Dingwall to
the west. We can be reached via the A9 from the south or
north, or the A832 from the west. The Black Isle is attached
to the mainland at the heads of the Cromarty and Beauly
Firths, and the description 'Black' is no more correct than
'Isle'. The exact origin of its name is unknown, though
there are at least six possible explanations of why it became
the "Black" Isle, ranging from the most intriguing,
through its association with witchcraft and the black arts
in mediaeval times, to the more prosaic, that the soil here
is very black, or that it has so many trees that it looks
black when viewed from surrounding areas in Winter. The
Black Isle is about 23 miles long by about 9 miles wide
at its broadest point and is more or less oval in shape.
Culbin Crofthouse Bed + Breakfast, and
the Self Catering Cottages,
are on a Highland Working Croft, the Cottages offer a
choice of old
(in excess of one hundred years ) and modern.
We rear a mix of cattle breeds, all are friendly and respond
to their name.

we like to think our location can offer the peace of the
countryside and also the city life close by in Inverness
City. Nearby villages are Munlochy to the North and North
Kessock to the South, both offer good food & entertainment
and good "crack" (our word for Fun, Conversation
